Business Participant Tracking System
The U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration (ETA) Growing America Through Entrepreneurship (GATE) project is an evaluation project designed to investigate the impacts of providing microenterprise start-up services to interested individuals. The GATE project assists people in creating and expanding small businesses. There are GATE I, GATE II, and GATE III projects.
In GATE I and GATE II, WSI developed and maintained a participant tracking system. WSI was responsible for day-to-day operations, system monitoring, data backup, and security, in addition to creating an automated system to synchronize the participant database between a public data collection site and internal databases for North Carolina and Alabama. In GATE III, WSI developed a tracing system to trace the latest contact information of individuals.
Secure data collection, monitoring, backup, and storage of program data. Automated database synchronization eliminates manual data entry errors and enables effective participant data management. Maintaining up-to-date contact information enables timely communication of program information with participants.
